๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ’จ Welcome to the Goblin and Coins speed-running community event! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ’จ


A little bit of history for newcomers...

Hello! I've created a little retro platformer game and with the help of friendly SG community managed to polish it and release it on Steam back in late 2016. Since then, I've held a few of these marathons/events/puzzles in order for all of us to have fun and at the same time to give back to SG members who supported the game by giving them the chance to win some nice prizes. You're welcome to check out previous events, tasks that were required, gifts, winners, hints...

...and now!

We'll try to speed-run the game for the first time ever in these community events. Speed-running is when you're trying to rush through the game in the shortest time possible. Current world record for this game is 17 minutes and 51 seconds. I'm not expecting you'll try to beat that, but I've set a much slower time to be our entrance bar - 1 hour. I've also prepared bunch of very detailed guides on how to record your video, how to set up timers... Of course, there are other ways for you to participate and have fun, even if you don-t have the game and never played it. Let's dig in!


Fast train for the fans

  1. Speed-running task, access to the entire train
    • Finish Goblin and Coins in one sitting in under 1 hr (World record is under 18 minutes, so even if you take 3x longer you're still in). Play on casual, doesn't matter what % of coins you collect or how many lives you lose. Timer starts when you enter World I from the map screen. Timer ends when you enter the door after defeating the World 5 Boss.
    • Record the video of it and post to YouTube. You're not required to show your face nor verbally comment, but it's fine if you do.
    • Submit the video to the https://www.speedrun.com/Goblin_and_Coins to get your score verified.
    • Post a comment here in the event thread with a link to your verified score. (like this https://www.speedrun.com/Goblin_and_Coins/run/mr82x1dy for example)
    • Important: Make sure your listed username matches your sg username!
    • Additional info: How to record a video | How to show/record timer | FAQ

  2. Gameplay video task, access to cars 2-4
    • Post a comment with a link to your brand new or existing video/playlist of playing the entire game of Goblin and Coins. YouTube channel must match the sg username (or sg username must be provided in video description if different). As this is not for speed-run, video can be split into several pieces.
  3. Achievements task, access to cars 3-4
    • Post a comment with a link to your Goblin and Coins achievements with achievements Goblin and Collector unlocked.

Seems it is a good game if you want to be a world record holder on speedrun.com. Next to no competition.

Yep, telling the ladies "I hold a world record on speedrun.com" really drops panties.

Some first-hand info from someone who's already attempted a speedrun of this game:

  1. My first-ever playthrough of the game took me a little under 40 minutes (I did watch the world-record speedrun of the game before playing, though).
  2. Knowing this, do make sure to record your first playthrough with the timer on. Chances are, you'll beat the game in under an hour on your first try. And if not, you'll get used to using the timer and set at least some kind of a baseline.
  3. The current world record can be beaten by a good minute if you just play well enough without dying too late into any level. No special 'speed strats' needed.

Ah yes, I'm counting your score for the participation and will invite you on Feb 1st when I set up the giveaways for the main train.
https://www.speedrun.com/Goblin_and_Coins/run/mr82x1dy

And my findings are the same, ~40 minutes for a first try if you've played the game before, and that's with a lot of dying and playing slowly even.

Yeah, I think I spent upwards of 5 minutes trying to make that very last jump towards the door that leads to the final boss. But I'm a changed person now!

GZ! I'll invite you on Feb the 1st when I create the giveaways for that train.

How easy/hard you'd say it was to get time under 1 hour? How many attempts did you need? Asking for others who might try but are afraid they'll be... slow.

It only took me one try. I'd say it was fairly easy, I don't think I played particularly well, and I spent quite a lot of time on a single level just from dying over and over again. I have played the game before though, but I really didn't remember much so I was still lost at times.

The entire regular train does not require that you've played the game, it's just a regular jigidi/ITH puzzle thingy.
